    Firstly, it would help if you could spell psychology. And it doesn't really matter how 'respected' subjects are, I've found.

    Third is meant to be Psychology right? I think last 3 are seen as soft; not that respected.

    They aren't solid 'hard' A-levels but I'm sure they're sufficient for the modern language course you're applying for.

    I would probably only do Psychology OR Sociology, not both.
    Drop Media Studies.
    Add another foreign language.
    Add English Language.

    Sociology and Media Studies have been criticised for being 'soft' options, but Psychology and French certainly aren't. If you want to apply to places like Oxbridge, this site should help you:

    http://www.trin.cam.ac.uk/index.php?pageid=604

    It lists A-level combinations they prefer. I don't know if Sheffield are this picky, but this list should give you an idea of which subjects are 'preferred' in more prestigious universities.
